Dubstep is a relatively new form of electronic music described as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals". There are those who say it's just noise, but of course, anyone who appreciates dubstep knows those critics just don't understand what they're listening to. Like classical music, knowing something about the genre adds to one's appreciation. You'll only be able to recognize the innovation and skill when you know something about the genre, its artists, and how each offers their own take on the sound of dubstep, from remixes of popular songs to original pieces. These are my ten favourite dubstep songs, in no particular order.

The twinkling keys and ethereal vocals are crafted in such a way that makes one think they were recorded with this remix in mind, creating a tune that stands the test of time years later. A year later, the two dynamic acts would reunite for a track bleeding with early 's dubstep sound. Precise bars over the classic, growling Skrillex sound elevated "Still Getting It" to one of the best tracks in both acts' libraries, despite often being overlooked. From the moment the signature piano from the beginning of "Sweet Shop" plays, listeners are instantly sent back to the days of arguing over the word "brostep" on YouTube. Doctor P 's screeching highs over grumbling lows paired with catchy vocals put this track on the list of all-time Circus Records greats. Speaking of Circus Records, it would be hard to make this list without including at least one Flux Pavilion song.
